Chamberlain Laboratories, Inc., Des Moines, la. Department Hears Talks on 2 Books Mrs.' R. W. Baumgartner, Miss Margaret Rule Present Reviews. Mrs. R. W. Baumgartner and Miss Margaret Rule were on the program at the Wednesday noon meeting of the Woman's club which was conducted in the library assembly. Mrs. Baumgartner reviewed "Sand Castle" by Janet Beith and Miss Rule, "Fighting Angel" by Pearl Buck. Terming "Sand Castle" a truly excellent novel which she could recommend wholeheartedly, Mrs. Baumgartner spoke of Miss Beith's winning an international prize tor her first book, "No Second Spring," published three y e a r s a g o a n d commented on the feeling of dismay which possibly foil awed Miss Seith's joy on receiving the prize, since it carried with it grave responsibility. Miss Beith is a most conscientious worker, slow and painstaking, and so self critical that it has taken three years to produce "Sand Castle," the speaker said. Cotton Manufacture. "The setting of 'Sand Castle,' is n northern England and Scotland and is concerned with the history of the cotton making industry," she said. "In this novel, man accepts the machine and his efforts are devoted to keep himself from sinking to being a mere cog." Mrs. Baumgartner sketched the plot ot the novel which tells the story of Allen and David Stewart, '·wo Scotch boys, who are given Dositions in-the office of a manufacturing plant by Charles Apple- ay. They are overwhelmingly un- lappy in the city. However Allen, Jie more adaptable of the two, be- cpmes interested in the process of cloth making, David is set to checking accounts which is distasteful to him. The Boss's Daughter. The boys meet Annis Appleby, daughter of their employer, and she and David fall in love. Their engagement is a long one and David finally goes to the Boer war ivhere he is killed. Allen and Annis marry and their children Colin and Barbara are carrying on the story which stops rather than ends on a weary note with the older generation glad to drop its burden to the hands of the younger generation. In beginning her discussion of "The Fighting Angel," Miss Rule said that although the book is biography it is more interesting than fiction. She spoke of it as a tender and beautiful character sketch of an unbelievable person. Religious Family. Andrew Stoner, the father of the author, was born into a religious family in which six of seven sons were preachers. He had to work on the farm while growing up and consequently was book starved. When he was 21 years old, he was given his choice of staying on the farm or taking $100 and a horse and leaving. He chose the money and the horse and entered an academy to prepare for theological seminary. When he decided to become a missionary, his father opposed him, but his mother was willing ·if he would marry before he left for China. He complied with her wish and he and his bride set ou1 for China. His wife, Carrie, had an unhappy life, which is described in "The Exile," a companion volume to "The Fighting Angel." Miss Rule spoke of the character of Andrew, giving many incidents from his life to illustrate his bravery, singleness of purpose and his goodness. Mrs. L. J. Strahan who presided announced the next meeting for Feb. 17, when Mrs. n'. E. Romey will review a play. --o-GARFIELD CHILD STUDY CIRCLE HOLDS MEETING Garfield Child Study circle met at the school for a lesson on "The Family's Part in Community Recreation" led by Mrs. W. A.

"Spotlight Sketches," an innovation in dramatic entertainment, will be preesnted -Thursday evening at 8:15 o'clock in the high school auditorium as one of the units in the American Artists association course sponsored by the High School Music Mothers club. Appearing in the program are John McMahill, Jr., and Jeffrey Mongerson. All the sketches are played in a spotlight and .by blotting out the average concert stage, an effect is achieved through the medium of illusion^ comparable to an elaborate stage setting. In the sketches which were written by Mr. McMahill, are "The Other- Man," "Jungle Fever," "Signal Drums" and "The Dope Addict." According to The Music News, Chicago, "Jeffrey Mongerson, a mere lad, and a protege of Mr. McMahill, assumed his 13 year old rolei n 'Signal Drums, 1 with a beauty of diction and distinction of appearance." The Chicago Herald and Examiner has termed Mr. McMahill as a "rising young genius of the theater." . Admission to "Spotlight Sketches" is by season ticket and single admissions may be purchased at the door. This is the third program in a series of four being presented under the auspices of the High 'School Music Mothers. The fourth will be the Choristers of the Ca- nadion Singers Guild.
